What do you think?

Do you think I'll be able to get the grass cut this summer? If I get 4 more, I'll have one for every day of the week! Actually, my dad just bought the one on the left from the local green dealer and I'm going through it a little for him right now. Will be a second mower for him that he'll use to cut part of the lawn while my mother drives their Prestige. Will help speed things up for them!

Wow, 2 late model Sovereigns both with PS. I believe the one on the right has a Command, but can't tell what engine's in your Dad's. Is it also a Command or is it a Triad?

And you cetainly should be able to cut much grass with the fleet.

I very recently bought a Simplicity 1989 4212H for $400.00. Runs great, cuts good and looks good. Lady said it had not seen a lot of use and it looks that way. No rust, paint and decals look new other than a slight fading of paint. Did I make a decent buy or not? Thanks

id="quote">My dad's is just a little older and has an original Command in it. Seems to run well. Mine was bought new in May of 2000 (not by me...I got it in 2010 but with original paperwork) and originally had a Triad. That engine actually worked well for me...was smooth quiet and powerful. However due to their reputation I got a Command repower kit from Al Eden. So, mine is a 1999 or 2000 with a Command engine built in 2011. In fact, Al even used some of the pictures I sent him on his website. They are still up.http://www.repowereng.com/repower_kits.htm

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
